Loretta Graziano Breuning

Loretta Graziano Breuning, PhD is founder of the Inner Mammal Institute, which helps people get the best from their mammal brain. As Professor of Management at California State University, and as a mom, she learned to question the presumption that happiness is our natural default state. She learned from studying animals that unhappiness is part of our survival system, and happiness is a learned skill. She retired from teaching to build alternatives to the disease-based view of the brain. Dr. Breuning wrote three books on making peace with your inner mammal, and writes the “Your Neurochemical Self” blog on PsychologyToday.com. She is a Docent at the Oakland Zoo, where she gives tours on mammalian social behavior. She constantly marvels at the overlap between a wildlife documentary and the lyrics to a country western song.Loretta spent a year in Africa as a United Nations Volunteer after graduating from Cornell University and Tufts. She lectured worldwide on resisting corruption pressures, based on her book "Grease-less: How the Thrive without Bribes in Developing Countries.”Ms. Breuning loves to help people discover their power over their mammalian operating system. Many free resources are available at www.InnerMammalInstitute.org.

big burst of cortisol is what we call “fear.” Small drips of cortisol are “anxiety” or “stress.” These bad feelings tell you you’re in immediate danger of pain, and your cortex tries to figure out what the danger is. Your reptile brain can’t say why it released the cortisol. It just responds when electricity flows down a pathway you connected in the past. You built those pathways from real experience, so the danger feels real to you. You want to avoid stress, but you want to avoid harm even more

We struggle to make sense of our neurochemical ups and downs because they don’t come from verbal logic.

But the circuits that tell you what’s good and bad for you are built from lived experience. You have to feed your brain new experiences for it to learn new ways of feeling good. And you have to keep doing it until the new circuit is big enough to compete with the ones you’ve already built by accident.
